Put the battery percentage on iPhone X
As I indicated at the beginning of the article, on the iPhone X Apple has decided to change the display mode of the remaining percentage of battery charge.
On all other iPhone models, in fact, the percentage is always visible in the upper right part of the screen, next to the battery indicator, after activating the specific function in the iOS settings, accessible by tapping on the icon. ofgear on the home screen, on the wording Battery on the next screen and bringing up ON the relative levetta all'opzione Battery percentage.
On the iPhone X the option in question is already active by default and cannot be disabled (in the iOS settings there is no reference to the thing as for the other iPhones) but in this case the exact percentage of the battery charge is viewable only and exclusively by calling the Control Center.
To do this, grab your iPhone X and swipe from the top right corner of the screen to the bottom. In doing so, in the upper right part of the control center screen well appear, next to thebattery indicator, Also percentage of the charge. You can take the steps in question with both locked and unlocked iPhone, it makes no difference.
What I indicated at the beginning of the article is the default method, so to speak, to put the battery percentage on the iPhone X. However, there are also other equally valid systems.
One involves the use of a special widget accessible via the dedicated iOS screen or the Home screen (on iOS 14 and later), another consists in charging the mealafonino, another allows you to obtain the desired information from Apple Watch and another from Mac. You well find everything explained in detael below.
Using the Batteries widget
As anticipated, you can put the battery percentage on iPhone X also using the appropriate widget Battery, included “standard” on iOS.
By default this should be already active, so by swiping from left to right on the lock screen or on the main page of the home screen, swiping from left to right, you should immediately see it.
If the widget is not visible, it is evidently because it has been disabled. To activate it, access the screen with all the widgets as I indicated earlier, scroll the latter down and press the button Modification. Then press the button capacitor positive (+) lead, at the top left, locate the widget Battery, select it, choose the format you prefer and, if you wish, drag it to the page of the home screen you prefer (these last two operations are feasible only on iOS 14 and later).

Another system, not exactly practical but stell useful, to be able to view the percentage of the battery of the iPhone X is to put the device in charge.
In doing so, in fact, the exact percentage of the charge level reached by the battery well appear on the iPhone's lock screen. Obviously the data is visible as long as the iPhone remains in charge and is also shown only at each new reactivation of the display, shortly after it disappears automatically and is replaced by the current date.
